Radiohead went home from the Brit Awards empty-handed. They were up for best UK band, but lost out to The Darkness.
Speaking of The Darkness, Ananova is reporting the newly-crowned Princes of Spandex have “slammed” Radiohead in a recent interview. Decide for yourself-
Guitarist Dan Hawkins told Netzeitung that Radiohead couldn’t hold up to the stage antics of his brother Justin.
He said: “Most of these modern bands are so unbearably serious they leave me cold. Radiohead are totally boring. The world needs a showman like Justin who puts on his monkey outfit and entertains people. I haven’t bought anything by these modern bands in a while. They’re all wet rags.”
Hawkins added: “Bands like Radiohead are great for our business, of course, because there’s been a total Radiohead-isation of the British music scene. Coldplay, Turin Brakes, Starsailor – all of these groups have put together their selection from the Radiohead menu.”
